Youth Camps

Adventures for the budding scientist in your life

Bell camps offer kids in a fun and enriching environment that encourages them to explore their scientific passions as well as new subjects. Led by pre-service and licensed educators, our camps include hands on activities, planetarium visits, outdoor games, creative activities, field trips around the University’s Twin Cities campus, and much more!

Even better, 2018 summer camps start before our grand opening, so campers will be among the first to tour our brand new museum!

June 11 - August 31, 2018

A variety of all NEW camps will be offered each week. Camps range from Kindergarten to grades 7-8, see details below. Campers should be registered according to the grade they will be entering in the 2018-2019 school year next fall.

For as little as $95 your household can become Bell Museum Members and receive discounted Summer Camp pricing—one of the many benefits of museum membership!

Full day camps: $350/week ($320 for Members)

Half day camps: $180/week ($160 for Members)
